Music discs encoded with
copyright protection
technologies
This product is designed to play back discs that
conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard.
Recently, various music discs encoded with
copyright protection technologies are marketed
by some record companies. Please be aware that
among those discs, there are some that do not
conform to the CD standard and may not be
playable by this product.
Note on DualDiscs
A DualDisc is a two sided disc product which
mates DVD recorded material on one side with

discs:
• A DVD VIDEO with a different region code
(page 6, 79)
• A disc that has a non-standard shape (e.g.,
card, heart)
• A disc with paper or stickers on it
• A disc that has the adhesive of cellophane tape
or a sticker still left on it
Notes about CD-R/CD-RW/DVD-R/
DVD-RW/DVD+R/DVD+RW
In some cases, CD-R/CD-RW/DVD-R/DVDRW/DVD+R/DVD+RW cannot be played on
this system due to the recording quality or
physical condition of the disc, or the
characteristics of the recording device and
authoring software.
The disc will not play if it has not been correctly
finalized. For more information, see the
operating instructions for the recording device.
Note that some playback functions may not
work with some DVD+RWs/DVD+Rs, even if
they have been correctly finalized. In this case,
view the disc by normal playback. Also some
DATA CDs/DATA DVDs created in Packet
Write format cannot be played.

Note
• Do not catch the speaker cord insulation in the SPEAKER jack.
To avoid short-circuiting the speakers
Short-circuiting of the speakers may damage the system. To prevent this, be sure to follow these
precautions when connecting the speakers. Make sure the bare wire of each speaker cord does not touch
another speaker terminal or the bare wire of another speaker cord, such as shown below.
Stripped speaker cord is touching
another speaker terminal.
Stripped cords are touching each other
due to excessive removal of insulation.
After connecting all the components, speakers, and AC power cord (mains lead), output a test tone to
check that all the speakers are connected correctly. For details on outputting a test tone, see page 69.
If no sound is heard from a speaker while outputting a test tone, or a test tone is output from a speaker
other than the one currently displayed on the Setup Display, the speaker may be short-circuited. If this
happens, check the speaker connection again.
Note
• Be sure to match the speaker cord to the appropriate terminal on the components: 3 to 3, and # to #. If the cords
are reversed, the sound will lack bass and may be distorted.

Video-based software is derived from TV, such as dramas and sit-coms, and displays images at 30
frames/60 fields per second. Film-based software is derived from film and displays images at 24 frames
per second. Some DVD software contains both video and film.
In order for these images to appear natural on your screen when output in progressive format, the
progressive signals need to be converted to match the type of DVD software that you are watching.
Note
• When you play video-based software in progressive signal format, sections of some types of images may appear
unnatural due to the conversion process when output through the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks. Even though
you set to “PROGRESSIVE,” images from the MONITOR OUT (VIDEO or S VIDEO) jack are unaffected as they
are output in the interlace format.

About MP3 Audio Tracks
and JPEG Image Files
What is MP3/JPEG?
MP3 is audio compression technology that
satisfies the ISO/MPEG regulations. JPEG is
image compression technology.
Discs that the system can
play
You can play back DATA CDs (CD-ROMs/CDRs/CD-RWs) or DATA DVDs (DVD-Rs/DVDRWs/DVD+Rs/DVD+RWs/DVD-ROMs)
recorded in MP3 (MPEG1 Audio Layer 3) or
JPEG format. However, the DATA CDs must be
recorded according to ISO 9660 Level 1, Level
2 or Joliet format and DATA DVDs of Universal
Disk Format (UDF) for the system to recognize
the tracks (or files). You can also play discs
recorded in Multi Session.
See the operating instructions supplied with the
CD-R/CD-RW or DVD-R/DVD-RW drives and
the recording software (not supplied) for details
on the recording format.
About the Multi-Session disc
If MP3 audio tracks or JPEG image files are
recorded in the first session, the system will also
play MP3 audio tracks or JPEG image files in
other sessions. If audio tracks and images in
audio CD format or video CD format are
recorded in the first session, only the first
session will be played back.
Note
• The system may not be able to play some DATA
CDs/DATA DVDs created in the Packet Write
format.

• which have the extension “.MP3” (MP3 audio
track) or “.JPG”/“.JPEG” (JPEG image file)
• which conform to the DCF* image file format
* “Design rule for Camera File system”: Image
standards for digital cameras regulated by Japan
Electronics and Information Technology Industries
Association (JEITA).
Note
• The system will play any data with the
extension “.MP3,” “.JPG,” or “.JPEG” even if
they are not in MP3 or JPEG format. Playing
this data may generate a loud noise which
could damage your speaker system.
• The system does not conform to audio in
MP3PRO format.
Playback order of MP3 audio
tracks or JPEG image files
The playback order of MP3 audio tracks or
JPEG image files recorded on a DATA CD or
DATA DVD is as follows:
Tip
• If you add numbers (01, 02, 03, etc.) to the front of the
track (or file) names when you store the tracks (or
files) in a disc, the tracks (or files) will be played in
that order.
• A disc with many trees takes longer to start playback.

Additional Information
Precautions
• Do not turn up the volume while listening to a section
with very low level inputs or no audio signals. If you
do, the speakers may be damaged when a peak level
section is suddenly played.
On power sources
On cleaning
• Unplug the unit from the wall outlet if you do not
intend to use it for an extended period of time. To
disconnect the cord, pull it out by the plug, never by
the cord.
• Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with a soft cloth
slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do
not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or
solvent such as alcohol or benzine.
If you have any questions or problems concerning
your system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
On placement
On operation
• If the system is brought directly from a cold to a warm
location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture
may condense on the lenses inside the control unit.
Should this occur, the system may not operate
properly. In this case, remove the disc and leave the
system turned on for about half an hour until the
moisture evaporates.
• When you move the system, take out any disc. If you
don’t, the disc may be damaged.
• If anything falls into the cabinet, unplug the unit and
have it checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
On cleaning discs, disc/lens
cleaners
• Do not use cleaning discs or disc/lens cleaners
(including wet or spray types). These may cause
the apparatus to malfunction.
On your TV’s color
• If the speakers should cause the TV screen to have
color irregularity, turn off the TV then turn it on after
15 to 30 minutes. If color irregularity should persist,
place the speakers further away from the TV set.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Caution: This system is capable of holding a still
video image or on-screen display image on your
television screen indefinitely. If you leave the still
video image or on-screen display image displayed
on your TV for an extended period of time you risk
permanent damage to your television screen.
Projection televisions are especially susceptible to
this.
Additional Information
• Place the system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the system.
• At high volume, over long periods of time, the cabinet
becomes hot to the touch. This is not a malfunction.
However, touching the cabinet should be avoided. Do
not place the unit in a confined space where
ventilation is poor as this may cause overheating.
• Do not block the ventilation slots by putting anything
on the system. The system is equipped with a high
power amplifier. If the ventilation slots are blocked,
the unit can overheat and malfunction.
• Do not place the unit on surfaces (rugs, blankets, etc.)
or near materials (curtains, draperies) that may block
the ventilation slots.
• Do not install the unit near heat sources such as
radiators, or air ducts, or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust, mechanical vibration, or
shock.
• Do not install the unit in an inclined position. It is
designed to be operated in a horizontal position only.
• Keep the unit and discs away from equipment with
strong magnets, such as microwave ovens, or large
loudspeakers.
• Do not place heavy objects on the unit.
On moving the system
Before moving the system, make sure that there is no
disc inserted, and remove the AC power cord (mains
lead) from the wall outlet (mains).

Glossary
Album
Section of a music piece or an image on a data
CD containing MP3 audio tracks or JPEG files.
Chapter
Subdivision of a title on a DVD. A title is
composed of several chapters.
DivX®
Digital video technology created by DivX, Inc.
Videos encoded with DivX technology are
among the highest quality with a relatively small
file size.
Dolby Digital
This movie theater sound format is more
advanced than Dolby Surround Pro Logic. In
this format, the surround speakers output stereo
sound with an expanded frequency range, and a
subwoofer channel for deep bass is
independently provided. This format is also
called “5.1” with the subwoofer channel
designed as the 0.1 channel (since it functions
only when a deep bass effect is needed). All six
channels in this format are recorded separately
for superior channel separation. Furthermore,
since all the signals are processed digitally, less
signal degradation occurs.
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II creates five full-bandwidth
output channels from 2 channel sources. This is
done using an advanced, high-purity matrix
surround decoder that extracts the spatial
properties of the original recording without
adding any new sounds or tonal colorations.
x Movie mode
The Movie mode is for use with stereo television
shows and all programs encoded in Dolby
Surround. The result is enhanced sound field
directionality that approaches the quality of
discrete 5.1-channel sound.
x Music mode
The Music mode is for use with any stereo music
recordings, and provides a wide and deep sound
space.

As one method of decoding Dolby Surround,
Dolby Surround Pro Logic produces four
channels from 2 channel sound. Compared with
the former Dolby Surround system, Dolby
Surround Pro Logic reproduces left-to-right
panning more naturally and localizes sounds
more precisely. To take full advantage of Dolby
Surround Pro Logic, you should have one pair of
surround speakers and a center speaker. The
surround speakers output monaural sound.
DTS
Digital audio compression technology
developed by DTS, Inc. This technology
conforms to 5.1-channel surround. This format
comprises of stereo rear channel and there is
discrete subwoofer channel in this format. DTS
provides the same 5.1 discrete channels of high
quality digital audio. The good channel
separation is realized due to the all channel data
being recorded discretely and processed in
digitally.
DVD
A disc that contains up to 8 hours of moving
pictures even though its diameter is the same as
a CD.
The data capacity of a single-layer and singlesided DVD, at 4.7 GB (Giga Byte), is 7 times
that of a CD. Furthermore, the data capacity of a
dual-layer and single-sided DVD is 8.5 GB, a
single-layer and double-sided DVD 9.4 GB, and
a dual-layer and double-sided DVD 17 GB.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2 format, one of
a worldwide standard of digital compression
technology. The picture data is compressed to
about 1/40 of its original size. The DVD also
uses the variable rate coding technology that
processes allocated data according to the status
of the picture.
The audio data is recorded in Dolby Digital as
well as in PCM, allowing you to enjoy more
realistic audio presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions such
as the multi-angle, multilingual, and Parental
Control functions are provided with the DVD.
DVD+RW
Parental Control
A DVD+RW (plus RW) is a recordable and
rewritable disc. DVD+RWs use a recording
format that is comparable to the DVD VIDEO
format.
A function of the DVD to limit playback of the
disc by the age of the users according to the
limitation level in each country. The limitation
varies from disc to disc; when it is activated,
playback is completely prohibited, violent
scenes are skipped or replaced with other scenes
and so on.
DVD-RW
A DVD-RW is a recordable and rewritable disc
that is the same size as a DVD VIDEO. The
DVD-RW has two different modes: VR mode
and Video mode. DVD-RWs created in Video
mode have the same format as a DVD VIDEO,
while discs created in VR (Video Recording)
mode allow the contents to be programmed or
edited.
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation)
A method for converting analog audio to digital
audio. It is used for the Compact Disc (CD)
audio format.
Playback Control (PBC)
Film based software, Video based
software
Progressive format
(sequential scanning)
DVDs can be classified as Film based or Video
based software. Film based DVDs contain the
same images (24 frames per second) that are
shown at movie theaters. Video based DVDs,
such as television dramas or sit-coms, displays
images at 30 frames (or 60 fields) per second.
In contrast to the Interlace format, the
progressive format can reproduce 50 - 60 frames
per second by reproducing all scanning lines
(525 lines for the NTSC system, 625 lines for the
PAL system). The overall picture quality
increases and still images, text and horizontal
lines appear sharper. This format is compatible
with the 525 or 625 progressive format.
Interlace format
(Interlaced scanning)
The Interlace format is the NTSC standard
method for displaying TV images at 30 frames
per second. Each frame is scanned twice alternately between the even numbered scanning
lines and then odd numbered scanning lines, at
60 times per second.
MPEG audio
A coding system to compress digital audio
signals. MPEG-1 is used for MP3 (MPEG-1
Audio Layer-3). MPEG-2 is used for one of the
audio format of DVD.
Multi-angle function
Various angles of a scene, or viewpoints of the
video camera are recorded on some DVDs.
Region Code
This system is used to protect copyrights. A
region number is allocated on each DVD system
or DVD disc according to the sales region. Each
region code is shown on the system as well as on
the disc packaging. The system can play discs
that match its region code. The system can also
play discs with the “ ” mark. Even when the
region code is not shown on the DVD, the region
limit may still apply.
Additional Information
A JPEG image or a DivX video recorded on a
DATA CD/DATA DVD. (“File” is an exclusive
definition for this system.) A single file consists
of a single image or movie.
Signals encoded on VIDEO CDs (Version 2.0)
to control playback.
By using menu screens recorded on VIDEO
CDs with PBC functions, you can enjoy playing
simple interactive programs, programs with
search functions, and so on.
File
ALL
Scene
On a VIDEO CD with PBC (playback control)
functions, the menu screens, moving pictures
and still pictures are divided into sections called
“scenes.”
Multilingual function
Several languages for the sound or subtitles in a
picture are recorded on some DVDs.
79GB
Title
The longest section of a picture or music feature
on a DVD, movie, etc., in video software, or the
entire album in audio software.
Track
Section of a picture or a music piece on a
VIDEO CD, CD, or MP3. An album is
composed of several tracks (MP3 only).
VIDEO CD
A compact disc that contains moving pictures.
The picture data uses the MPEG 1 format, one of
a worldwide standard of digital compression
technology. The picture data is compressed to
about 1/140 of its original size. Consequently, a
12 cm VIDEO CD can contain up to 74 minutes
of moving pictures.
VIDEO CDs also contain compact audio data.
Sounds outside the range of human hearing are
compressed while sounds we can hear are not
compressed. VIDEO CDs can hold six times the
audio information of conventional audio CDs.
There are two versions of VIDEO CDs.
• Version 1.1: You can play only moving
pictures and sounds.
• Version 2.0: You can play high-resolution still
pictures and enjoy PBC functions.
This system conforms to both versions.
